After watching The Shootist again, I am finishing up AMC's John Wayne marathon with Big Jake. I'm not sure which of The Duke's movies I like the best. I sure did like Dean Martin's little tune in Rio Bravo.
The script in The Shootist called for John Wayne's character to shoot a man in the back. His response was, "I've made over 250 pictures and have never shot a guy in the back. Change it."
Integrity...hard to find nowadays.
